The co-contribution for the Business Growth and Business Pivot Programs has been reduced to make each program more accessible for Territory businesses.
The co-contribution for both programs has changed to 25%/75%. This means businesses only have to contribute 25% of cost of works while the voucher covers 75% of the total, up to a maximum of $10,000. Reducing the level of grant co-contribution will ease the financial pressures of businesses affected by the COVID-19 Omicron wave and support more businesses.
Business Growth is designed to help Territory businesses grow, develop and expand. It’s available to businesses looking for professional advice, systems and services to improve their performance, sustainability and profitability.
For more information on the Business Growth Program, go to the Northern Territory Government website.
Business Pivot is designed to help small businesses adapt to the changing economic environment. Businesses can access funding to reach new markets or grow their profitability through digital capabilities and new technologies.
